Oh Happy Day.

My little boy and I had some Cricut fun last night. He is VERY into gadgets and anything electrical. Anything with "cause and effect" really. I decided I needed to refresh my chalkboard area now that Vday is over and my love banner has fulfilled it's decorating destiny (have you seen the FRIENDS episode where Phoebe wants to save all the dead Xmas trees from the chipper so that they can fulfill their Christmas destiny? It's a classic!).
I decided to add some "chalkboard motivation" to my kitchen. Something to remind me starting at breakfast that today is a happy day that needs to "count."

Noah and I cut 2" circles and all the letters out on the Cricut. I realize that both of these steps could be done without the Cricut, but we have one so we used it (so there, ha).
I cut out 3" circles on glittery silver card stock, and I layered them with mini white cupcake liners. I like the 3D ruffly look it gives. I used a glue stick to stick on the letters, and then I used a hot glue gun to stick the rest of it together. Then I added twine for hanging and wallah!

And one of my dreams came true today. Just look at those little pink piggies. {DREAMY!} I hope you all have a "Oh Happy Day" too!
